Ogygia - Part One is the prologue to a tripartite
experimental drama documentary, adapted from the autobiographical
writings of the Irish poet, senator
and surgeon Oliver St John Gogarty.
It combines the episodic
structure of Homer's Odyssey with
the stylistic pyrotechnics of Joyce's Ulysses to relate
a contemporary account of Gogarty's extraordinary life.
Ogygia - Part One consists of the first three
of an eighteen episode work.
Episode I is a drama adapted from both the
action described in the opening chapter of Ulysses and of Gogarty's
account of events on the morning of June 16th, 1904.
